Drake's 'Draft Day' Samples Lauren Hill, Mentions Johnny Manziel & Jennifer Lawrence


New Drake track “Draft Day,” which samples Lauren Hill’s “Doo Wop (That Thing),” name drops NFL draft prospect Johnny Manziel and Hunger Games star Jennifer Lawrence.

Drake's 'Draft Day'

"Draft Day" starts out with a reference to Johnny Manziel – who’s sandwiched between two girls on the background for the SoundCloud track – and goes on to mention NBA prospect Andrew Wiggins. Drake then raps about himself, his money and his general success before he gets into name-dropping some fellow rappers and actors – and making some less-than subtle digs.

“And if I left s--t to chance I would've picked a name like Chance the Rapper/ No offense cause I don't know that ni--a,” raps Drake about the Chicago hip-hop artist.

Making a dig ostensibly about the married Jay-Z and the engaged Kanye West, he goes on, “I'm focused on makin' records and gettin' bigger/Just hits, no misses, that's for the married folk.”

As for Jennifer Lawrence, the former Degrassi star rhymed, “On some Hunger Games s--t I would die for my district/Jennifer Lawrence you can really get it/I mean forreal, girl you know I had to do it for yah.”
